Reportedly there was an alleged blast in a JioPhone unit in Kashmir.
As per the report, an incident of Relaince’s JioPhone unit explosion has come to light, where the phone’s back can be seen completely melted. But there is no authenticity of this report, neither there are additional details available to as where did the incident happen exactly, and to whom this JioPhone belonged to.
Also, while looking at the images of the phone provided by reporting website Phoneradar, it is evident that the cause of the problem isn’t the battery, because the battery can be seen intact. Also, the front of the device can be seen completely fine.
On reporting this issue to Reliance, the company says that their “initial investigation suggests that this is a case of intentional sabotage.”
A spokesperson from Reliance Retail in a statement said, “JioPhones are designed and manufactured with global standards, and each phone goes through stringent quality control process. The said incident has been reported to us. Our initial investigation suggests that this is a case of intentional sabotage. The damage to the device seems to have been intentionally caused. The incident, as well as its timing, has been designed by vested interests to malign the brand. We will take appropriate action based on further investigations.”
While this is still a matter of investigation for Reliance Jio, what we know is that the report can’t be trusted fully, since the reporting website has been known to done some exclusive stories in past which never turned true, so you’ll need to take this one with a pinch of salt as well.
